world of tattoos has long gone beyond the boundaries of single-color and simple tattoos. More and more there are different types and unusual styles. One of the styles that appeared not so long ago is a watercolor tattoo.
The founder of this style is considered a tattoo artist from New York, Amanda Wachob (Amanda Wachob). She, professionally possessing artistic skills, was able to transfer a watercolor drawing from a sheet of paper to the body, while not using any additional tools – only a tattoo machine. What has become completely new and extraordinary in the world of tattooing. She turned ordinary body drawings into masterpieces of art. The very word "Watercolor" is familiar to everyone since childhood. It was with watercolors that we learned the basics of fine art in kindergarten and school. Translated from French and Italian, "watercolor" means "watery". Due to the dissolution of watercolor pigments in water, smooth transitions and soft color notes are created in the drawing.
This style is preferred by romantic and creative natures. But this does not mean that only girls, men also love paints and art. Tattoo-watercolor takes its beauty and uniqueness, so most customers do not think about the symbolic meaning of the picture, they want to get aesthetic pleasure.& nbsp; from her presence. The choice of a plot for stuffing completely depends on the taste and preferences of the client. It can be a mythical creature, nature, abstract images, portraits and many other masterpieces. The symbolic meaning of tattoos made in the watercolor style is almost the same as that of ordinary tattoos.Therefore, in addition to the amazing beauty, you can add a certain philosophy and hidden meaning to a watercolor tattoo.
Please note that a professional master working in this style initially creates a sketch on paper. It is here that he embodies all the transitions and combinations of colors, otherwise a real watercolor will not work. Therefore, he should be perfectly able to draw with watercolors on paper and create a whole world or history with paint. Watercolor is considered poetry among paintings, so before choosing it, think about the plot, about the semantic load, about what your picture will carry to others.
With the help of a watercolor tattoo, you can hide the shortcomings of the figure or, on the contrary, emphasize the advantages, draw attention to yourself.
